Default What do I do!!!

Well, my mom was doing laundry, and she spilled paint on Hershey!!! Nothing got in his eyes, or anything. He still has some paint on him, after his bath. Some on his personal area, and chest. Should we take him to a groomer to get the rest off? I don't know what to do! Thank you for reading! Hershey is fine though, nothing is in his eyes. No serious damage to him has occured. And this was an accident!

LOL what kind of paint is it, hon... Acrylic, the kind you put on your walls, watercolor, etc? Watercolor and scenic-type paints should be water soluble and should have come off. The stuff that gets on your walls--if it's still damp--is easy to get off, pop him back in the bath and scrub. I guarantee you he wont care where you're scrubbing. Acrylic will dry into plastic, basically, and is nearly impossible to get out, so if it's damp--SCRUB. if not grab a wire bristle brush or comb and break it up, sliding pieces off the hairs gently. After most of it's gone go over him with a soft-bristle brush to get rid of the little bits left.

Its the stuff you put on your walls. He was happy he got a good bath last night too! Running around the house like a puppy though. (he thought he was a puppy again, and he could fly!!!)

That's what I was thinking! Was she using paint as laundry detergent?

Latex wall paint is water soluble, so just give him a nice, warm bath.

If it still doesn't come out, just trim it out carefully

I wouldn't worry to be honest.

Check the paint is non-toxic by checking the tin.

If it is toxic, trim it out, if it isn't it'll come off eventually.

Bodhi had a splodge of white paint on her head for awhile - we're decorating and I think she wanted to help.
